    Since you SFers just finished up your renal block.... :D I figured that maybe I could pick your brains about something (or anyone else's brain that contains renal info for that matter...)

    My BFs dad is in the hospital with recurrent pericarditis of unknown etiology... but they aren't even sure that it is really pericarditis, and is currently being given Bumex and indomethacin (Indocin.) Aren't these two meds not supposed to be given together? I read that indocin inhibits the bumex-induced increase in plasma renin activity. Any thoughts??

    There is an increased risk of nephrotoxicity and decrese the effects on diuretics with these two drugs. The bumex is for chf and the indo is the nsaid, pretty standard for pericarditis. Sounds like there might be more the story though.
